Ever wondered what it's like to be an organic farmer for a day? Here's your chance! We hold two sessions - one from 9.30am to 12.30pm and the other 2pm to 4.30 - with a bring and share lunch in between. If you're interested please fill in this form!
Earlier this year the new 'Learning to stay dry' group formed to address issues around flooding and excess rainfall.
One way to stop flooding from those huge summer downpours is to create rain gardens, which collect water off roofs to slow the water flows, prior to dispersing the remaining water that has not evaporated or been used by the plants.
For more ideas about sustainable drainage techniques, read this blog post.
The rain garden was at the Romsey Mill in June this year as part of the Chelsea Fringe.
One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future.
The energy group is your place to find tips to save energy, get involved in awareness-raising across the area or help set-up renewable energy co-ops. Look out for upcoming events in the newsletter for your chance to get involved.
As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.
However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.
We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!
